New Jersey state police say a Pennsylvania man was killed when the tractor-trailer he was driving overturned on a northern Jersey highway.

Andre Epps of Harrisburg was eastbound on Route 78 in Union Township when his rig overturned early Saturday on the highway shoulder near milemarker 12.6.

The 42-year-old Epps was trapped inside the truck and suffered severe head injuries in the accident. He was pronounced dead at the scene around 12:25 a.m.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation by the Hunterdon County Prosecutor's Office. Epps was traveling by himself, and no other vehicles were involved in the crash.
